Assurance of God's Personal Love for Us
The startling truth about the love of God has lost its potency. It is not a passionless, theological idea. It is a real love that feels and even suffers. Whether you grew up in a Christian home and have forgotten this essential truth, or you never knew it in the first place, we all need to be reminded--and assured--that God's love is real and personal.
The Reckless Love of God is about pulling readers in close and asking if they have really considered what it means to say, "Jesus loves you."
Nothing changes lives and grows the church faster, more effectively, and more thoroughly than being captivated by this reality. But the love of Jesus is not just a means to another end. Receiving the love of Jesus is the end itself.
Includes end-of-chapter questions for individual or group use.
Does God Really Love Me?
Sometimes the bigger something is, the easier it is to forget. You may have heard all your life that God is love, but has the truth of that statement really sunk in?
In The Reckless Love of God, pastor and church planter Alex Early pulls you in close to ask if you've ever really considered what it means to say "Jesus loves me." God's love for us is real--he feels, knows, and even suffers on our behalf. Nothing will change your life, your goals, and your relationships faster than being captivated by this reality.
Whether you grew up as a Christian and have forgotten this essential truth, or if you're hearing it for the first time, you need to be reminded--and assured--of the simple, amazing, mind-blowing fact that God loves us.
"There is not a more powerful statement to the human heart than this: You are totally loved and fully accepted. If you want to grow in this truth and experience this reality, The Reckless Love of God is for you!"--Darrin Patrick, lead pastor of The Journey, St. Louis
